Lore's Books - Jewish Roots, German Life, Volume 2
The second volume of Lore's family history series concentrates on the paternal side - the Jacobis.
The book describes the porcelain factory founded by Lore's grandfather, Issac Jacobi, and how fondly this company and its
produce is still remembered by those in the town of Neuleiningen, Germany, today.
This volume also features a brief history of the former synagogue in Grünstadt.
Here are some scans of selected pages from the book:
The Jacobi family tree and an introduction to Lore's paternal grandparents, Sophie Jacobi, née Siegel, and Isaac Jacobi

The Hotel Jakobslust, once a regular venue for Jewish functions, but was allegedly far less accomodating to Jews after Hitler came to power.
The Hotel has been in family possession since 1672 and in 2000 the owner was Frau Schlupp (shown page right).
Frau Schlupp gave Lore and family a very warm welcome on their various visits to Grünstadt
